Not everyone loves green nail polishes but I think it makes a change from boring red and pinks. This Estee Lauder green caught my eye straight away, it is part of the Spring 2013 Heavy Petals Collection. It’s called Absinthe* and is a real avocado true yellow based green.
After the first layer I thought I wouldn’t really like the nail polish, it applied sheerly at first but with just two coats I actually got the opaque look achieved in the photo and it was completely streak free! In the official pictures it looks a little lighter and I must admit I would have preferred it that way as it looks a little more summery. I’m very excited to use this in the summer with more of a tan as I think it doesn’t look as amazing as possible against my current winter skin colour.
The packaging on all the Estee Lauder nail polishes is truly beautiful and classic, not that I would expect any less from EL. There are four other shades which all look beautiful and I can not wait to try a few more!
